And I am not saying this just because I am an Alabama fan and I hate them, but because I trully believe they are gonna be really bad this year (I honestly believe they will win 6 games).
I mean between these 8 teams, tell me where you see 3 wins or more:
Clemson, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Texas AM, Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Arkansas?
I think Auburn's defense will be better but I think they will have one of the worst 3 offenses in the SEC this year. They won't pull rabbits out of their ass like they did last year (they should have been 5-7 or 6-6).
Give your opinions on how you think they will do this year not because you hate them, but as a football fan what you honestly think their record will be.
Never underestimate weird barn luck. I've watched them win several the last few years that they had no business winning.
The last two of three years I predicted that they wouldn't do so well. In 2009, they exceeded my expectations but probably underachieved as the talent on the team was pretty decent.
In 2010..... I thought they had a 10-win team just b/c of o-line, but I secretly hoped they would get crushed.
2011. finally...they are starting to lose games that they are supposed to lose. (in '09, '10 there were crazy come from behind wins. Even '11 utah state says hai)
2012...they return a lot of fellas....imo....it all depends on whether those guys work hard this summer.
regarding tuberville and chizik, however....I think tuberville was way classier even with his fear the thumb campaign....at least he wasn't like chizik who instructs his guys to dive like a missile at the opponent's head after the play. watch their players....they bounty huntin....
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
Honestly I see them losing six games next season and possibly seven or eight. Clempson, LSU, Arkansas, aTm, UGA, and BAMA should all beat them, with possible loses to MSU and Vandy. Yes, Vandy.
I see them for sure losing to Bama, LSU, and UGA, and they'll probably manage to win 2 or 3 out of A&M, Clumpson, Arky, MSU and Vandy.
I think they will be ok. Each year people post how bad they will be and seldom do they fall on their face. They have good players and stupid luck. That should equate to 8 or more wins.
I don't know how many they win or lose but they are due to lose some close games. The last close game they lost was the 09 iron bowl and they have had plenty of close wins the past two years. Somethings gotta give.
